Award winners are part of the storytelling that bring to life the evidence, that collectively, employee owned businesses punch well above their weight offering multiple impacts for society and the economy, including 8-12% increased productivity.

About the award

The EO Rising Star Award celebrates a business that is a shining example of early success in their EO journey and can already demonstrate positive impact from their EO culture.

Judges comments

Judges noted that Pennard Vets had really leveraged their employee ownership to deliver impacts on turnover, growth, and staff satisfaction through embedding a Great EO culture in the team. Not only this, but they also sought to protect their business’ independence and used that to become a champion of EO within their own sector.
